Video - How does a 100 year old revived 28.5L engine sounds?

Snapshot: The clip is a trailer for the upcoming documentary called the 'Beast of Turin' chronicling the story of the racing history.

We all do love those grunting and growling noises, coming out of the exhaust of a race car. And that is the reason, it attracts our attention way before we can see it. Racecars are meant to be fast and loud, and that is why people love them! But, the new age emission norms and other regulations have made the racing, a bit of quieter affair. And add to that the championship, with all the electric cars and fuel cells, it seems like our racetracks are running some mute film.

As much as we miss those early age sounds of those racecars, a clip has landed online, reminding us, what have we missed in so many years, and the people felt in those good old days. The clip is a trailer for the upcoming documentary called the 'Beast of Turin' chronicling the story of the racing history and the revival of Fiat S76 land speed record racer.

This clip of a Fiat S76 racer teases the rebuild and restoration of the record holder and the sound it produced almost after 100 years of its revival. This Fiat houses a mammoth of 28.5 litre four-cylinder engine, making it among the largest automotive engines ever. Now consider this, each cylinder has at least 7 litre of capacity, which is more than the whole mill of a Corvette or a Camaro or any other Supercar for that matter.

But the fun part comes, as soon as the engine starts firing with no exhaust in place. The gases, fire and the sounds it produces, is nothing short of a demon at work. We hope that the rest of the documentary lives upto the teaser.
